ABOUT THIS PARAMETER

proportion of trips made by mode and distance

his complex parameter identifies how many trips are made using a certain transportation mode for a specific distance range compared to all trips made using all transportation modes over all distance ranges. For instance, this measures how many one mile trips are made by bicycle compared to bicycle trips of any distance, as well as all trips of any distance made by cars, buses, planes, etc.

Used to calculate:trips by mode and personal miles by mode

Varies by: distance, transportmode and lifestyle

* 0.0 - 0.5 Airplane Average Earthling Assumed New York City: Urban Area () 0 % (0 - 100) Comprehensive information on the travel patterns of the average earthling are not easily obtained as transportation varies widely between countries. We used the trip distance distribution for the average American lacking any information about the trip distance distributions of the average earthling. We used modal splits for personal motor vehicles (55% of distance travelled), buses (28%), and passenger rail (6%) from Fulton & Eads (2004) for distance categories greater than one mile. For distances less than one mile, we assumed that 40% of all trips were by walking, 10% by bicycle, and the remaining trips followed the modal splits for passenger travel. Finally we assumed that air travel was entirely accounted for by trips greater than 200 miles.

We used the trip distance distribution for the average American lacking any information about the trip distance distributions of the average earthling. We used modal splits for personal motor vehicles (55% of distance travelled), buses (28%), and passenger rail (6%) from Fulton & Eads (2004) for distance categories greater than one mile. For distances less than one mile, we assumed that 40% of all trips were by walking, 10% by bicycle, and the remaining trips followed the modal splits for passenger travel. Finally we assumed that air travel was entirely accounted for by trips greater than 200 miles.

We used these proportions and assumed that all trips under 1.1 miles were made by walking, trips between 1.1 and 5 miles were split in half between walking and biking, all trips between 5.1 and 20 miles were made on bike, and all trips over 20.1 miles were made on train. This value was calculated assuming minimal negative environmental impact within reason.
